BOM explosion [Order not saved...aborting]


Issue with BOM explosion matl when creating a SO. Issue arises only when the following steps are followed.

I create a SO in the following way:

With all basic details filled, for items the following are the steps:

1. enter material# 1 in first line along with qty and uom

2. enter material# 2 in second line with qty and uom

3. enter materal# 3 in third line with qty and uom

press enter.

At this time the system prompts with a message saying the plant is not entered for the bom explosion. So i enter the plant for all the items and then save. Upon saving the sale order processing is aborted with the following error message "item 000021 already exists, the entry will be ignored ", message# V1338.

Have anyone came across this error and found a way to resolve?

pls share.
